Not the usual police procedural, this focuses on Rick Castle, a bestselling mystery writer who is shadowing a NYPD detective, the better to use her as a model for the heroine of his next series. I really liked this, because:

1) Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle. What can I say? I'm a fan.

2) Stana Katic as Detective Katherine Houghton "Kate" Beckett--in particular the chemistry between her and Fillion and the witty banter between them.

3) It's set--and filmed--in New York City, my home town--not a Hollywood set or Toronto as a stand-in. And it shows. Adds to the fun.

4) I liked Castle's family. It was nice to watch a good father/daughter relationship.

5) I liked the whole publishing/writing element--there's even a scene early on where Castle has a poker game with other bestselling writers--some real ones playing themselves such as James Patterson.

Really, really fun. ( )
